Photographers and Artists Monday

Dragon fly on Leaf

ArtMuse Dog and I on boardwalk at local Conservation Area ~ Delightful day walking and photographing nature in all its splendor.

Weather was fantastic this weekend with just a 'nip' to the air. So we decided (like that 'we') to take a walk in a totally new place today. A friend had told me about this place and given me a map of the area so it was a new adventure for us. New areas always open my eyes to a different perspective with my creativity. I wasn't happy with the light; but, did get some good shots that I will be sharing later this week. Hope you had a good weekend  also.

We are sharing with:

We love to have you post your comments, thoughts or questions to delight us all in the day ~ especially, ArtMuse Dog ^_^

  1. Great photos! Love that boardwalk :0) I need to get myself out for a long Nature Walk soon. It seems that Mother Nature has plotted against me this season :0(

  2. looks like you had a wonderful walk and time in a new place.

  3. Wow Carol. What awesome photos. I was really impressed with the macro of the dragonfly. It is really superb. Have a super week.

  4. What an original composition, Carol and Muse Dog. Was this a collaboration between the two of you? :-)

    You did exactly what I plan to do in a couple of weeks when the fall foliage appears--take my new puppy to Bernheim Forest for a photo shoot. It has an observation bridge over the forest canopy. Nothing better than to be out in nature with your best friend--as you know so well.

  5. It looks a very beautiful place for a walk. Your weather appears to be very like ours at the moment; a crisp chill, but sunny!
    I can see why you would enjoy it. Have a great day!

  6. Lovely pictures. Nice dragonfly capture.

  7. Great capture of that dragon fly. Every time I try to take a close up picture of a bug, they get scared and fly away. Good job!

    In the boardwalk picture, it looks like ArtMuse Dog is telling you to hurry up and get your picture and lets move on. LOL.... so cute

  8. Such a cute shot of your little dog on the boardwalk!

  9. Lovely peaceful photos, thank for my morning inspiration!

  10. ohhhhhhh... I like these very much. we have a bit of a "nip" in the air, too. only about 75 out there when Gracie and I had our Morning Adventure. she would surely love to play where you two played!!

  11. I just love an adventure!! Good for you taking the time to do it. Of course...the cutie always makes it a special photo.

  12. love the boardwalk! and how it curves and seems like it goes forever.

  13. Did the dragon fly make all these holes in the leaves ? I love the doggie picture !

  14. Dragonflies are everywhere at the moment. I found two last week that had reached the end of their lifespan. I took lots of pictures and life still vibrates through the images.

  15. Beautiful photos - and I really like that quote at the bottom ;)
    Have a beautiful day, xoxo

  16. i made my way to a blog that i really love.
    good morning! (woof woof!lol)

    these are all great!
    very nicely done:)

    have a great day from start to finish!

  17. Boardwalks are like stairways. There is always a little bit of mystery as to what you'll find at the end.

  18. Lovely the dragonfly on the leaf...great catch!

  19. Pretty! Looks like the perfect weather for a long walk.

  20. Looks like a lovely walk. I nearly missed the dragonfly!
